Ahh fall…finally our skin will get a bit of a reprieve from summer’s intensified UVB rays that cause sunburns. However, we need to remember that UVA rays, which penetrate our skin deeper and cause the most aging, continue to affect us all year round.

Nonetheless, fall is still a time when our skin can begin to transition to a more regenerative phase by receiving nourishment and tranquillity. This season is an essential time that affords our skin rest from the long, sunny days of summer, which while wonderful, let’s face it are hard on our skin Eighty percent, yes, that’s 80%, of visible aging is due to UVA and UVB exposure.

While fall sees some less intense rays and shorter days, we must continue to protect our skin from the sun, so don’t think for one moment that you don’t need to use sunscreen:) Take the time to find one you truly enjoy applying. I have a few of my favorites that I am happy to share with you.

Fall and winter are traditionally the time to schedule peels, laser series, and exfoliating treatments. However, in my 20 plus years of experience with all of these procedures, I have found these methods not only to be outdated, but to cause more harm than good. I have discovered that the most effective and powerful way to help our skin regenerate is through daily and occasional large doses of dermal nutrients.

In addition, professional extractions, which help remove congestion that has built up over the summer, is another gift we can give our skin during these months.

Make sure to also prepare for colder weather and learn how to protect your skin during Winter.

Keep learning about the new paradigm shift and what this means for your skin…practically.

Harm to heal is OUT and Nourish to Heal is IN.

Real Healing is a beautiful process.
